About North Coast Community College

2016 marks an important milestone for the College with the launch of our new business name. On that note we are delighted to welcome one and all to North Coast Community College. After more than thirty years of trading in multiple locations under different business names we are now operating under this single new identity.

Amidst all the change the important elements remain the same – we are committed to the delivery of quality training products, to listening and meeting the needs of our community and to advancing the skills and capabilities of our local economies. We remain a not for profit training provider based in Alstonville with established training centres in both Yamba and Ballina. We continue to operate with a dedicated staff team, employ a suite of quality trainers and are guided by a voluntary board of directors.

2016 brings with it many new opportunities and training products.

Business Booster is specifically targeting business owners, managers and team leaders with short, fast paced learning that is context driven for local business.

Overlaid across all of these new elements are the outstanding possibilities created by government funded programs, specifically Smart & Skilled which is a reform of the NSW Vocational Education and Training System. This initiative provides students with access to subsidised training (conditions apply).

There has never been a more innovative time in community education, this new era is all for you.

To enrich the community by providing learning opportunities for all

We offer an extensive scope of nationally accredited full qualifications and sets of skills from Certificate I through to Certificate IV which can assist people in gaining employment and being successful in their roles. As well, we offer many general interest courses ranging from computing skills to leisure and lifestyle.

We contextualise and deliver customised training programs within a broad range of industries, provide one-on-one training with a focus on support for those with special needs and/or barriers to employment and training. We also provide flexibility in training by offering a range of delivery methods and modes.

  • Flexible and responsive to client, employer and industry needs
  • Emphasise the enjoyment of the learning experience
  • Assist with vocational opportunities, and
  • Empower students to participate in the community and workforce to their full potential.

Our passion is helping students unlock their potential through quality flexible training. It is our close relationship with local businesses and business leaders that ensures what we teach is relevant, practical and transferable and that is what sets our training apart from other providers.

Students who study with NCCC have the advantage of our personalised approach to the training process. They are supported by our friendly staff and experienced trainers from start to finish. They have access to our fantastic facilities and will work through practical assessments based on situations encountered in the real world.

Through our community programs our involvement extends to specialist programs, such as youth programs and literacy, programs for people with disabilities and mental health challenges as well as the provision of a meeting place for a cross section of local groups.

Integrity: We are accountable for our actions, honesty and for doing the right thing.

Professionalism: We are each responsible for performing our roles to the highest standard, developing new skills and displaying good judgement

Quality: We pursue personal, team and training excellence in accordance with the legislative framework.

Respect: We work together respectfully to deliver the best outcomes for our clients, the College and the community.

NCCC is able to provide a range of support services to students and referrals to other community support services. If you think you may have difficulty achieving the outcomes of the course, discuss this with your trainer or the Training Manager. It is best if this is done before commencing the class or as early as possible once the class commences so your needs may be assessed and accommodated if possible. We can offer specialised support in the areas of Literacy, Numeracy and Language.
